Homeless People Living Like Pigs in Hawai’i

I have as much compassion and understanding for homeless people as anyone, but one thing bothers me. Why do they have to live like fucking pigs? Why is it that they have to have shit scattered all over an acre of park or abandoned land? I respect the ones...

WTF is going on in Hawaii?

Hawaii is my home. I’ve lived here longer than anywhere else I’ve ever lived. I’ve been following the news for a long time – even when I was away. The last week has been insane…I’ve never seen so much violent crime in a single week. A deadly shooting in...

Virtual Stocks, Virtual Murder, and Radio Raheem

For the first time since 2003 when I stopped being a stock broker, my virtual portfolio has gone into the red. Until a month ago I was continuously up more than $5000 on a virtual $20000 portfolio based on the stocks that I sold to my clients. Hopefully, someone...
